“RD-6: When is a tape not a tape?” by Nate Muncaster

InnovOil 6-2015 "RD-6: When is a tape not a tape"In terms of modern pipeline protection, “tape” has very negative connotations . It is associated with failure as a result of disbonding, wrinkling and shielding on cathodic protection, all of which can occur once the tape has lost its adhesion to the surface. In the US market, multi-layer polyethylene tapes have more or less been dead technology for decades, now used by only small fringe of the industry.

In response, Polyguard developed the RD-6® Coating System – the “tape that is not a tape” – in the late 1980s. It differentiates itself from older tape in its application and performance, offering far superior adhesion and added resistance to elongation – a customized polypropylene mesh means it will resist wrinkling from soil stress. The coating is a self-healing, one-layer system which can be applied faster and more simply – it doesn’t need time to cure – than multi-layer tape systems. [Read more…]

North Texas DEC Member’s Company, Polyguard Products, Speaks Out Regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership | District Export Councils of Texas

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBSDFW.COM) – CBS 11 News’ Karen Borta traveled to the White House to interview President Barack Obama about the proposed major trade agreement called the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Supporters say it will increase wages and lead to more jobs. But critics say they don’t believe that will happen.
 
The President told CBS11 the deal would keep jobs here, raise wages and open new markets. “The truth is this is going to be extraordinarily open,” says President Obama. “We don’t have an agreement yet, so it’s true what we haven’t laid out the actual agreement, this just gives us the authority to negotiate.”
 
President Obama says the trade deal being negotiated would put new standards in place that would help protect workers and the environment. And the President says it would help North Texas companies like Ennis-based Polyguard Products. The CEO there supports the deal. [Read More…]
